If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud plans, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
